Wearing religion as an aesthetic, not cool girl!

In Hinduism, Ganesh (Also known as Ganapati, Ganesh and
Vinayaka) is “the god of beginnings” and “the remover of obstacles.” Most
depictions of Ganesh God show the head of an elephant with multiple arms. This
God denotes wisdom, intellect and success.
